Easter weekend

I have always loved Easter. It is so humbling, happy, and hopeful. The fact that Jesus Christ died for my sins is completely overwhelming and freeing. Jesus has overcome death and now lives, and we will live eternally with him in perfect community...pretty amazing.

Cole and I had a great and spontaneous weekend. We decided around 6 p.m. on Friday that we wanted to go to Birmingham. We threw a bunch of stuff together and hit the road. We drove straight to Bottega and used the gift card Ty gave Cole for Christmas. It was delicious! We ran into several people that we know there which was really surprising. I always think we will see people when we eat out in Tuscaloosa, but we never do. I never dreamed we would see people we know in Birmingham.

We spent the rest of the weekend in Birmingham at Cole's parents' house even though they were at the beach. We stalked our new house (I still absolutely love it and can't wait to move in!), and drove around our new neighborhood. I now know how to get to the house. Woohoo! And I think I can get to most places from our house. I'm sure I'll stalk it many more times before we close in June.

Saturday night we had dinner at Liz and Allen's house. We haven't seen them much this semester because we've all been really busy, so it was nice to catch up. Sunday we went to a couple of open houses just for fun and then went to church with Cole's parents. It was a nice service, and we got to see Liz and Allen again. We went to see Baby Miles after church. He is absolutely adorable and had a lot of new tricks to show us. I can't wait until we can see him more regularly. After dinner with Cole's parents, we came on home.

We still haven't had one person come to look at our house which is disappointing. I know it will sell eventually, but, to be honest, I HATE having to keep it spotless all the time. I am not a neat person by nature, so it's really hard. Cole has done a great job of cleaning the kitchen every single night before we go to bed, and he takes out the trash, makes up the bed, and tons of other things around the house. He's been great. I've been trying, but it's hard. We're hoping that these habits will follow us to the new house, so it'll always be clean.

More likely, though, we'll just get tired of keeping it so clean and then totally trash the new house. Who knows though? Maybe I'll magically turn into my mom.

I love you, but I doubt you'll magically turn into Mom.

I've been trying to turn into Mom for a long time.
